Journalists camped outside the house where Oscar Pistorius will be living while on parole.
While the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) issued a statement on Friday morning saying Oscar Pistorius had been released from prison and was “now at home”, it is unclear what time he was released or how he got to the property.
